My Approach to Helping
I am an LCSW with over 26 years of service to Child Adolescent and adult individuals with mental health and psychoactive substance use challenges. I have been recognized for my Clinical skills in Fulton and Dekalb counties and the Grady Health Care systems. I use the Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory(SASSI) to support Individuals with interest or who requested to have Substance Abuse Evaluations. As a Licensed AASI Clinician, I can administer Sexual Interest Assessments to Adolescents and Adults.
I see and hear what each person identifies as disturbing and non-functional towards goal achievement, identify their strengths, and encourage them to take the risk to make changes and cultivate motivation for positive change. I introduce therapeutic modalities based on the interventions' positive effects on each individual.
